Hi,

I'm trying to set up IIS 5.1 (in XP Pro) to run Perl scripts locally. When I try to run the script from IE a dos prompt flashes up briefly - in it I can just see the words 'Content-type: text/html' before it disappears.

I have created a virtual cgi-bin directory in IIS - settings are as follows:
The local path points to the cgi-bin directory with my scripts in - permissions are read, log visits and index this resource.
Under Configuration I have mapped extension .pl to my perl executable (c:/perl/bin/perl.exe %s %s) and verbs = ALL (and yes, my scripts have a .pl suffix!)
Execute permissions is set to 'Scripts & Executables'.
Application Protection is 'Medium'.

This was all working last week which makes it even more frustrating!

Any help gratefully received (as always :))

Thanks,
Matt
